Dead Poets Society - Nerdfighter chapter

"I went to the woods because I wanted to live deliberately. I wanted to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life. To put to rout all that was not life, and not, when I had come to die, discover that I had not lived."

Carpe Diem

This is not (just) a group for fans of the film Dead Poets Society, but for Nerdfighters who actually want to start one. We'll share our favourite poems, poems we have written and encourage each other to sieze the day.

I don't know enough classic poetry, and I doubt you do either. Let's explore it together.

This movie changed my life. I'm not joking. My teacher showed it to our class and I was so moved by it that she let me keep the movie...forever. I cried in it not only because of its sadness but also because of our close to home it came for me and how perfect it was in general. Of course, Neil was my favourite. He was the one I related to the most. As a matter of fact, I blogged about this movie. It is perfect. I've never been one to say "Seize the day" but I say "Carpe diem" (which means the same thing) all the time just to make sure I never forget that movie.

:D I thought I was the only one in a 100 mile radius of my life who love this movie as much as I do. It's the only movie I can firmly say is my all time favorite. <3

psssh bennet you haven't seen the movie? I must loan it to you.

p.s. I learned the phrase "carpe diem" from this movie and it is now pretty much my life motto...

I'm just going to say this from the start: DPS is my favorite movie ever.
I tried to start one with my best friends, in my closet. It was amazing.
But alas, it is gone, and I've been wanting to get into another one.

... I just felt you should know that.

What a fantastic idea! i have tried numerous times to start a DPS but it has never worked out within my friendship circle. this group may just be the answer!
